sanctions on iran, a country dedicated to israel's extinction. instead he favored direct negotiations, viewpoints not at odds with but to the left of president obama. hagel also supported negotiations with hamas, a u.s.-designated terrorist group, and he said a lot of things criticized as insufficiently supportive of israel, a longtime and strong u.s. ally. in his 2008 book "the much too promised land," middle east analyst aaron david miller quoted hagel saying the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here, but i'm a united states senator. i'm not an israeli senator. hagel supported the pentagon's old don't ask, don't tell policy governing gays in the military, and in 1998 said of president clinton's openly gay nominee to be ambassador of luxembourg, quote, i think it is an inhibiting factor to be gay -- openly air, gressively gay like mr. hormel -- to do an effective job. last month more than 14 years later hagel apologized for those comments. mr. hormel said he was skeptical. if mr. hagel is nominated set your tivo for the hearings. senator lindsey graham is here next on hage

questions about his past statements and positions, especially about israel and iran. at times, hagel seemed to struggle to answer some of those tough questions and other times he gave answers he later had to clarify. let's go to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. jessica, it was a tough, tough day for chuck hagel? >> reporter: so far it has been, wolf. chuck was battered by republicans, forcing some stumbles and bruising. so far, no knockout blow but the day of questioning is not over yet. former senator chuck hagel sat at the table alone fielding hostile questions, including one-time close friend, john mccain. >> i want to know if you were right or wrong. that's a direct question. i expect a direct answer. >> i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot of things. >> reporter: that exchange centered on hagel's past opposition to the iraq surnl, a surge that mccain championed. >> no one individual vote, no one individual quote, no one individual statement defines me, my beliefs or my record. we must use all our tools of american power to protect our citizens and ou
past statements on the pro-israel lobby. >> i'm a united states senator, not an israeli senator, but my first interest, i take an oath of office to the constitution. not to a president. not to a party. not to israel. >> another republican senator lindsey graham said his former colleague would, quote, not most antagonistic secretary of defense towards israel in our nation's history. mr. hagel hotly disputes that, he has many defenders including those in the jewish community. hagel has apologized for the tone of his opposition in 1998 to an openly gay ambassadorial candidate. he called him openly, aggressively gay, and now calls that characterization insensitive. joining me is margaret hoover. full disclosure. you helped start a group opposed to senator hagel's nomination. what are your problems with him? >> well, which i'm actually not involved with anymore, but i understand the perspective of them. there are a lot of folks who have concerns about some of the things hagel has said in the past and that's why we'll have a full -- >> specifically about israel? >> specifically about israel,
's committed to keeping peace with israel. i want to take a moment and remind our president before he delivers the remaining parts of the deal to morsi, exactly who he's dealing with, mohammed morsi is a muslim brotherhood member, a 9/11 truther, called the israelis descendents of apes and pigs and called them vampires and killers and stands with the palestinians and told an iranian news agency he'll reconsider the camp david accord and pushed through a sharia focused constitution and one more thing, mr. president, he called you a liar and america the enemy. here with the reaction of the troubling story former new york mayor rudy guiliani. you know the first questions that come to my mind are, why would anyone give these planes when they likely will be used to attack israel? >> it's hard to figure out exactly what else they could be used for. explain to me where egypt is threatened. egypt is not threatened by saudi arabia, egypt is not threatened by iran. egypt is not threatened by russia, china, the united states. what conceivable reason would they have for these jets other than to do somethi
of nebraska. he questioned israel and his unwillingness to back sanctions. listen to lindsey graham yesterday at the state you of the union. >> this is an in your face nomination by the president to all of us who are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon, little if any. i think it's an incredibly controversial choice and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in your face term. >> foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty is live from washington this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> opposition to hagel comes from the right and left. can you break down the issues? >> yeah. i think it has to really start with israel because the people who believe that he is not a supporter of israel, in fact, they would question his devotion to anything that would help israel. he, for instance, believes in talking to hamas. he also has come out against iran sanctions by the united states. and so that gets other people very worried about his position. he opposed the surge in afghanistan. and when you get into that
message are we sending to israel? i am perplexed that the president has nominated him. >> i want to ask questions about those positions. i am not comfortable -- yet -- i want to ask him questions about those two issues. >> shannon: senators kelley iiot and richard blue menthal are both apprehensive about the president's choice for secretary of state. i sat down with chris wallace to chat about that revealing conversation. the president has offered up a number of nominations for key positions and you had two senators to talk about the nominations of former senator hagel. >> that will be a tough nomination. we had two members of the armed services committee, which will hold hearings. iiot is very concerned with the positions that hagel has stated and voted in years as a senator on iran, on israel, on defense cuts, on a variety of issues. and she indicated that at this point, that she is leaning against him. and he is going to have to persuade her in one-on-one meetings, the nominees meet with each of the members of the committee and in the committee hearings. but she said, he's going to h
. some others have issues with what he said about israel. also, he started out as a supporter of the iraq war. then, he flipped on that. eventually, he came out against the troop. he also called the defense budget bloated. some question that he would be too tough on military spending. that is the next fight in washington. that deal puts off what is known as the soap quester. tte automatic spending cuts. but those cuts off for two months. congress is now going to wrestle with how exactly to replace those cuts, slow down those cuts or change those cuts. there are a number of republicans who have concerns over the former senator's record. a number of these issues have come up. we are not quite getting a firm read yet on exactly how it shakes out. there are concerns. back to you. lori: thank you. i wonder what the vegas odds are. so interesting that hagel has most of the opposition from other republican senators. agreeing to a deal with the government. a case-by-case review of foreclosures. how consumers may benefit. melissa: we will tell you when and how much it will cost you at the post off
is israel, when it comes to dealing with iran, with israel, with the broader region. hillary clinton holds the record for the most countries visited at 112. israel, the least visits from any secretary of state since rogers. henry kissinger, 36 times for israel. is this significant? >> well, i mean, she was very energetic. i don't know if she gets frequent flyer miles for all of the miles she logged. >> sadly, no. that's probably the one perk she didn't get, right? >> right, but the fact is our relationship with israel hasn't been the best. s so i don't know if you can directly equate that. anne marie served in the administration. but under the obama administration, relations with israel have been very tough. they may have reached a bottom and mare they're on an uprise, but once again, i think this comes down to president obama's policy. remember, she's the secretary of state. she implements the president's agenda, and i think a lot of the problems out there, i think, were president obama's vision. i think i may be wrauk here, but i think secretary clinton would have done things a little di

in washington last april you voiced concerns about israel. you said in part, quote, in this place we may ask, have we learned anything from it, speaking of the holocaust. if so, how is it that assad is still in power? how is it that the number one holocaust denier, ahmadinejad, mahmoud ahmadinejad, still is president of iran? he who threatens to use nuclear weapons to destroy the jewish state. how concerned are you about the future of israel today? >> i'm, of course, terribly concerned because israel is the only place where jews have after all come to build their own state, 2,000 years after they have lost it to the romans, and if god forbid something happens to that state, the jewish people would not be able to take it, to deal with it, two catastrophes in our memory, it is impossible to bear and, therefore, really, we're committed to the security of israel and we try whatever we can do to help it in honor and in peace. but will still i'm worried. of course, i'm worried. statement i'm worried when other tragedies occur in this world and there are so many. >> do you feel like this country's
from israel and from afghanistan, john mccain and kelly ayotte and other senators who just returned from visiting in egypt with morsi to discuss these very issues. the people of egypt and morsi in particular know that continuing a relationship with israel is key to u.s. foreign aid, that there needs to be a strong military commitment in israel specifically to protect the sinai because we know that weapons are being shipped up through the sinai to gaza to hamas. so, this is, as you say, a continuation of a previous agreement, it is going to continue and even the people of israel agree it's important to make sure that the egyptian military is strong, but egypt needs to continue its commitment to the camp david accord. >> sean: but senator johnson, the egyptian military now, some of the key leaders that we thought were more moderate, they're gone. morsi has gotten rid of them and now give them f-16 fighter jets and tanks, i've got to be honest, sometimes i wonder, this guy was a former terrorist in the muslim brotherhood. help me out, how does this-- how does this strategically work fo
and israel could come in the next few months. >>> the defense department inspector general has cleared general john allen of allegations he wrote inappropriate e-mails to jill kelley. now, jill kelley had claimed that she was being threatened by paula broadwell. you may remember the woman who had an affair with the former cia director, david petraeus. we were sent an op-ed by kelley and her husband, scott, that will be published by the "washington post." in it, the kelleys describe how they were victimized throughout the ordeal. they also urged congress to consider legislation to strengthen electronic privacy. >>> it has been 537 days since the united states lost its top credit rating. what are we doing to get it back? a total of about 4.65 million homes were sold in 2012, homes that were previously owned. that number may not mean much but it does mean something important. it's the best year we've seen for those home sales since 2007. >>> now, our fourth story "outfront." mourning the hostages lost. the family of one of the american victims of the algeria hostage crisis spoke out today
scandal surrounding the senator. it's all unconfirmed but the potential legal fallout is huge. >>> israel takes no chances. the air force launches two air strikes in syria preventing the assad regime from transporting chemicals and weapons of mass destruction to hezbollah. if the red line is crossed israel will attack again. we cover it all. "the kudlow report" begins now. first up we learned today the fourth quarter gdp fell slightly, much to everybody's surprise. so the white house is blaming republicans for the fiscal tax cliff and the spending sequester which i think is hilarious. they invented the sequester. we have had tax, spend and regulate policies for four years. why not try something different. let's talk about it with our powerhouse panel. jared bernstein, center on budget and policy priorities. senior fellow. doug holtz-ekin, peter suderman and james freeman, assistant editor for the wall street journal. james, i'm amoused right off the top. team obama starts attacking republicans first of all for the budget cutting sequester which they invented. second of all, for the fiscal
with the muslim brotherhood who is a sworn enemy of israel and 9 united states. we need to suspend the issue of giving him foreign aid as well as weapons. >> sean: they are claiming they made that deal. they made the deal back in 2010. president didn't have a problem reneging on the canadian pipeline, why couldn't do the do it here. giving weapons to radicals? >> i have talked to some individuals both israeli government and our government. the one respected institution in egypt is the egyptian military. the generals that were in charge of the egyptian military have been replaced to now have generals that are sympathetic to the muslim brotherhood. i would say we should suspend all aid to the egyptian military unless we see a regime change. >> sean: we're giving these jets free and tanks free and giving them $1.5 billion tax payer dollars. >>> we have to understand it's not a theology, it's an ideology and historically it's been militant. any time you have an islamic theocracy, it is going to not be tolerant of western secularism and it's going to be oppressive. they are very open about declar
are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon. little, if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice and it looks like the second term of barack obama will be an in-your-face term. >> so what are some of the issues? start with israel. as you heard, a number of his opponents, especially on the republican or conservative side think chuck hagel is not a friend of israel and point to his position on iran sanctions. they say because of his position that iran sanctions essentially aren't effective, that that is another point against him. also, from the liberal side, comments about a dozen, maybe 14 years ago, that chuck hagel made about a candidate for an ambassadorial position, where he called him openly and aggressively gay. now, chuck hagel has since apologized for that, but that also raises some haggles among some people on the more liberal side. not going to be a friendly reception up in the senate, however, the white house obviously thinks they can pull it off. >> an interesting confirmation hearing, that's for sure. >> let's talk a
for secretary of defense. hagel's a republican, but he's been accused of anti-semitism toward israel and he's also soft on iran. >>> and epa regulatory menace lisa jackson finally resigning because president obama apparently will approve the keystone pipeline. that's the latest from a number of sources. and i say good riddance to her, but good for the keystone pipeline. here is a disgraceful story tonight. new reports that welfare cash is being spent on strippers, booze, and important shows. whatever happened to work requirements. and the battle everyone's waiting for in miami tonight, notre dame looks to win the national championship over obama. but in one way, the fighting irish may have already won. and last but not least, i'm going to tell you why i think a debt ceiling and government shutdown, bad idea. i'm going to show you a better way. the "kudlow report" begins right now. . >>> first up, amid allegations of anti-semitism and antiisrael sentiments, president obama nonetheless nominated former republican senator chuck hagel for the position of secretary of defense. that today, also r
, will israel bomb iran, and will the euro zone finally break apart? >>> then the fiscal cliff. the view from across the pond. how did our political process look from a perch overseas and what will it all mean for the u.s. economy and the global economy? >>> also, will this be india's awakening? the nation confronts its own dark corners after a despicable deadly act. i'll look at some parallels with america's recent tragic school shooting. >>> first, here's my take. the deal to avoid the fiscal cliff is a small victory for sanity, but what it says about the future is somewhat bleak. washington will probably lurch from crisis to crisis kicking problems forward and placing band aids small solutions on those it does address. there will likely be no large-scale initiative on tax reform, entitlement reform, energy policy, probably even immigration reform and this is the real worry. because beyond the self-inflicted crisis of the cliff and the forthcoming debt ceiling, the united states faces a much deeper challenge. for more than a decade now, for many decades by some measures, america's growth ra
of defense towards the state of israel in our nation's history. not only has he said you should directly negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, an organization, terrorist group that lobs thousands of rockets into israel, he also was one of 12 senators who refused to sign a letter to the european union trying to designate hezbollah as a terrorist organization. >> reporter: pretty tough words there. also angered the lgbt community with comments he made back in 1998 when he called into question a nominee for the ambassador to luxembourg, called into question his fitness because he was game he has recently apologized for those remarks but you know, senator graham said he would be very inclined not to support hagel. on the democratic side, illinois senator dick durbin did speak more positively about hagel this morning on "state of the union." let's listen to that. >> chuck hagel was a republican senator from nebraska, a decorated veteran of the vietnam war, a person who has a resume that includes service on the foreign relations committee as well as
of israel in our nation's history. he has long severed his ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president to all of white house are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon, little if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice. and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in-your-face term. >> well, senator hagel is a straight talker from the midwest. he'll give you an unvarnished opinion, and very outspoken. but he has stated his unequivocal total support for israel, saying critics have completely distorted his record. graham predicted other republicans would have a hard time with hagel's nomination. and it just makes you wonder what is really behind all this. senator graham complained that hagel had cut ties with the republican party. but obviously president obama isn't under any requirement to nominate anybody from any party, especially the republicans in the first place. maybe republicans don't like the fact that hagel won't be so eager to get us into another co
on israel. > >> he's had a record of distinguished service but he's wrong on a number of the national security issues that face our country today. >> reporter: hagel insists his views are distorted. he's also under fire for criticizing a clinton nominee as "openly aggressively guy." >> it's dangerous to roll the dice on this issue. >> reporter: all questions lawmakers are eager to ask whether confirmation hearings get underway. now hagel did get a high profile endorsement not here on the hill. it was from former secretary of state colin powell, the general said he's independent. he's bold. he thinks both inside and outside the box. >> thanks so much. >> reporter: so remember a few weeks back when we told you how treasury secretary tim geithner said he figured out a way to keep the government defaulting on the debt for two months? not so fast. a new analysis by the bipartisan policy center says the u.s. may default a month earlier than expected. they say the government will likely run out of money to pay its bills between february 15th and march 1st. we hit the $16.4 trillion debt limi
. the president repeated his commitment to the deep and enduring bonds between the u.s. and israel. >>> and we are getting new details about the condition of former israeli prime minister ariel sharon who suffered a devastating stroke seven years ago. here's cnn's sara sidner. >> reporter: one thing is clear, doctors and sharon's family are excited about what a new test has revealed. doctors and scientists from the u.s. and israel used a high-powered mri on mr. sharon. and the scan showed significant brain activity in response to external stimuli. mr. sharon has been in the hospital for seven years after suffering is a brain hemorrhage in 2006. now, for year, the public has been under the impression that the storied israeli political powerhouse was in a coma or vegetative state. i spoke with the doctor who said sharon actually has had a low level or intermediate level of consciousness throughout the years which means he was not on life support or comatose all this time but somewhere in between consciousness and comatose and doctors don't know where exactly on the spectrum. when the new test wa
at critics who question his support for israel. in his first interview since the president nominated him to be defense secretary, the former nebraska senator told a lincoln newspaper his record is being distorted and an accurate assessment will reveal unequivocal total support for israel. >>> and in the next hour of "early start," we'll be joined by peter beinart, correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast about the implications of hagel's nomination. >> a fascinating talk. >>> james holmes is expected in court today again in colorado. a police officer testified that holmes was, quote, very, very relaxed. the preliminary hearing will determine if holmes will stand trial in this case. 12 people were killed in the shooting and, of course, dozens and dozens were wounded. >>> and bells will be ringing across tucson today marking two years since the shooting that killed six and severely wounded congresswoman gabrielle giffords. giffords and her husband, mark kelly, also announcing a new gun-control initiative that they are launching today. their new website, americansforresponsiblesolut
are looking at a deadline, israel would like there to be a deadline of late spring, early summer in terms of a decision on iran. leon panetta, the defense secretary, current defense secretary, told me he thinks we have more time than that. the u.s. isn't on the same page as israel. isn't it just the reality that america doesn't want a war at all? there wouldn't be the political will for it anyway. >> i don't think anybody does. do we ever really want war? i don't think that's the case, erin. i think the issue here is that most peopldon't realize that we have been negotiating with iran for nearly a decade on their nuclear program. 2003, when it was finally, the world finally became aware of iran's nuclear program which didn't come from the iranian government, by the way. it came from another group. so i mean, we've made no progress. the centrifuges keep spinning. sanctions haven't really worked. we've had -- they've had little effect, although they have some effect but no effect on changing the policy of iran. so you know, the question is can you live with a nuclear iran or are you going t
for israel released this ad. watch this. >> secretary of defense chuck hagel, president obama says he supports sanctions on iran. hagel voted against them. hagel voted against labeling iran's revolutionary guard a terrorist group. while president obama says all options are on the table for preventing a nuclear iran, president obama, for secretary of defense, chuck hagel is not a responsible option. >> sean: joining me now, a rising star in the republican party mo has already come out and voiced opposition to hagel's nomination. texas senator in the studio ted cruz, on your big victory. >> thank you, good to be here. >> sean: it's great to have you. what about his inability to name terrorist groups for what they are? >> it's really remarkable. you know, that ad, i think, highlighted a number of the aspects of senator hagel's record that are most troubling. you take, for example, a vote on designating the iranian revolutionary guard as a terrorist group. at the time the revolutionary guard was sending explosive projectile into iraq and used to kill service members. that's the definition
